Every other week I send my newsletter subscribers a list of new hotels, B&Bs or villas that have caught my eyes. I know that some of my readers don’t always want hotels with pools or are just looking for an easy stay on a roadtrip for instance so there’s plenty for them to choose from in the newsletter and the app.
Out of those 50 addresses or so that they received over the past few months, here are the ones with pools. There are a few villas in there too.
If you want to get the info as soon as I publish them, make sure to sign up to the newsletter below.
All addresses are also regularly added to the app.
